Nash returns for Davos

After missing four games with a shoulder injury, Rangers forward Rick Nash returned to the lineup for his Swiss club, Davos, on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old winger, who is one of three Rangers playing overseas during the lockout, scored the game-tying goal and added an assist on teammate Joe Thornton's marker against EV Zug.

Nash, who scored a hat trick in his first game for Davos, has five points (four goals, one assist) in four games for the Swiss-league team.

McDonagh will fly Tuesday evening to join his new team in Kazakhstan and could appear in the lineup as early as Friday.
